In the Summer of 1942, widower Eddie Kurnitz heads South looking for work, leaving his sons, Jay and Arty, in the care of their domineering grandmother, who runs a candy story in Yonkers, New York. The household also includes their childlike Aunt Bella, who has a secret romance, and Uncle Louie, a small-time hoodlum on the run. This semi-autobiographical play mixes Simon’s trademark humor with heartwarming drama in a nostalgic nod to family, hope and love. Winner of the 1991 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the Tony Award for Best Play.
“The best play Simon ever wrote.” – New York Post
